Medical Reports: Online baby help
For parents-to-be, it can be hard to make time for anything, let alone childbirth classes, but now pregnant moms and dads have a new option. In today's Healthcast, Seven's Christine Cruz shows us how baby help is just a click away.
WSVN -- Every new parent hopes for this moment, but before they get to this point, moms and dads-to-be often take childbirth classes to prepare.
Candy Mueller: "The more comfortable they are with the process, the more they know what their options are, the better chance to have a better birth."
Candy Mueller says the problem is many women don't have the time to come to weeks of classes. Now expecting parents Sarah and husband Jeff get all of their questions answered by logging on to a childbirth class.
Jeff Ewelt: "Oh, yeah, see that's excellent. Everything I can get ready for."
Jeff Ewelt: "We have busy schedules, so to be able to do it at our own time and own schedules, there's nothing like that."
Couples can watch videos and take notes on information offered by the hospital-backed course. At the end, they are quizzed on what they've learned. For $45 they can log on for 90 days to do the three hours of class work.
Candy Mueller: "We've found nothing but positive reaction. They are just so thankful that it is available."
Thanks to the on-line class, they're confident they'll be ready when the real thing is finally here.
Christine Cruz: "The on-line course is open to any mom and dads-to-be and even includes an optional face-to-face session."
